    East TN Waterfall Hikes to Do Before Summer Ends

    Okay, we know no one wants to admit it, but summer is coming to an end. Shhhh don’t read that aloud. There’s still time to soak up that glorious summer weather in Tennessee, though. In fact, we’d argue the best hiking weather is yet to come! We know hiking in the summer  can be a sweaty endeavor, but we all probably agree that waterfalls are best enjoyed during the heat of summer. We know, we know they’re beautiful when frozen too, but there’s nothing quite like a refreshing dip at the bottom of a waterfall after a long, hot hike. So, we decided to put together a list of some…

    Proudly Made in the USA

    Just like Bruce Springsteen said, “Maaaade in the USA.” Okay, maybe he didn’t quite say that, but close enough! The phrase “Made in China” is probably all too familiar to you at this point. Not that long ago, in the 1960’s, Americans were producing 98% of their shoes in the U.S.  Today, more than 90% of shoes sold in the USA are imported. We believe it’s important to support industry within the USA, and Elliott’s Boots is proud to carry a wide selection of products made in the U.S. With the Fourth of July coming up, we wanted to highlight some of our American made or assembled products.    …

    Restored Clothing Line Makes a Difference

    Felicia Lane never intended to start a t-shirt business, but her determination landed her in the clothing industry nonetheless. A couple of years ago, Felicia was looking for a way to spread God’s word without being overbearing. She didn’t want to confront people and ask them about their faith. Instead, she hoped to find a way for others to feel comfortable approaching her. “At the end of the day, I wanted to wear something so that people would come up and approach me [about my faith],” said Felicia. With this mission, she set out to buy herself a few articles of clothing that related to her faith. However, nothing she…

    Continue practicing sustainability after Earth Day with these brands

    It’s predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Approximately one in four fish contain evidence of ingested plastic. Most of the plastic waste in the ocean comes from the mismanagement of waste on land.  The biggest culprits are single-use plastics such as plastic bottles, bags, and straws. Each year, Americans generate 35 billion pounds of plastic waste. This plastic contributes to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an island of plastic roughly twice the size of Texas located between California and Hawaii. The Garbage Patch continues to grow. Unfortunately, the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is only a portion of the plastic problem in oceans.…
